Rental FEE: $60/night
Available Celestron Plossl Eyepieces: 9mm, 25mm, and 40 mm
The Celestron Deluxe C-8 OTA has optics which are hand-figured. It has Starbright XLT high transmission multi-coatings. These include high reflectivity 5-layer enhanced aluminum mirror coatings, plus magnesium fluoride antireflection coatings on both sides of the Schmidt corrector lens. These multi-coatings visibly increase contrast on subtle lunar, planetary, and nebula details when compared with a scope with standard coatings. They also give you higher light transmission for brighter deep space images and shorter exposure times during photography. It has a 2" (99% reflectivity) dielectric mirror diagonal, with compression ring eyepiece holder and 1.25" adapter. AC/DC current is available using the power adapter cables which are provided. External battery power can also be used.
The telescope is mounted on a new Celestron AVX GO-TO equatorial mount (http://www.celestron.com/browse-shop/astronomy/mounts-and-tripods/advanced-vx-mount) using a new CELESTRON STARSENSE AUTO-ALIGN accessory (http://www.celestron.com/browse-shop/astronomy/accessories/navigation/starsense-autoalign).
